Here’s a student guide to eating on a budget around the NUJS and NIFT on the Bypass.

Samatha’s For Anda-Bread

If you’ve missed your breakfast or want to fill your stomach with something wholesome during class breaks, this is one dish that is bound to be your best friend. Home-style omelette tops a pav with a special masala to add zing to your taste buds. And it’s for only INR 20. You can also add cheese to that at just INR 35.

Van Mashi’s Biryani

For a wholesome lunch, Van Mashi comes to the rescue. There’s a a wide range of Indian and Chinese dishes on offer like chicken bharta, chilli paneer/ chicken, mutter paneer along with fried rice and roti. She also has the king of all dishes {as far as Kolkata is concerned!} – biryani – for INR 50. With egg, potatoes and chicken pieces served with chicken curry, this biryani is a bestseller.

Bournvitta Lassi Guy

It’s been real hot past few days since the rains stopped. So grab a refreshing lassi from this guy in front of NIFT. It’s the right amount of sweet and sour, and very unique with added Bournvitta and crushed cashew nuts on top. This one-of-a-kind lassi comes for just INR 20.

Pav Bhaji And Rava Masala Dosa Stall

Located in front of NUJS, this is that one secular food stall that bridges the gap between the West and the South, and brings it right to the east! if you want a quick bite of butter pav served with bhaaji, or finger-licking vada pao, then this is the place.

They also serve up a mean rava masala dosa with a hot and spicy sambhar and complimentary chutney of three different types. Along with nimbu mirchi and onions, each platter comes for just INR 30. They don’t charge for extra bhaaji or sambar, so eat all you can.

The Fruit Chaatwala

This fellow is next to the pav bhaji guy. His patent way of calling to the people or the variety of fruits that you get to see at his stall, will make you stop and grab a plate of his chaat. if you’re looking for that mouthwatering, jaw clenching, sour and spicy snack, then this is your destination.

You’ll find a variety of fruits like guava, starfruit, raw mango and berries, mixed with kasundi {the fiery mustard sauce of Bengal that we all love!} and other Indian spices. The chaats range from INR 20 to 35.
